Subject: Haven't Heard This Recording, But ...
The sound was indeed really off on the night and the musicians couldn't hear one another, or themselves, properly. Brendan was definitely having trouble with his IEMs, and Jake couldn't hear Joel. The UMLive cleans up okay, but it was generally agreed at the time that this was a comparatively weak show.

Subject: thanks for the tape
Yeah unfortunately I have to kinda agree with the other comment, maybe the sound was just really off that night? All the same, much thanks for getting a recording of them from across the pond :)

Subject: ow my ears, good god
first off, a gold star for the effort, and for the cd cover. but it truly does sound like it was taped with a waterlogged boombox under a chair in the back row, very poor audio quality. equipment probs onstage, occasionally some uncharacteristic sloppy playing too. couldn't even make it through the whole thing. however, on umlive if you buy the tracks separately instead of the whole thing you can save a couple of bucks, so for the completists out there, go for that.
